For alpine nights from the Andes to the Rockies.
Up high where the wind blows without mercy and winter rules all year, you can unfurl the Rab Andes 800 -8 Degree Down Sleeping Bag and rest up comfortably for your summit push. The Andes uses a combination of tough and water-resistant Pertex Endurance and Microlight fabrics to wrap the super-warm 800-fill hydrophobic European goose down, which in turn traps your body heat and helps you face down winter's icy fangs (and maybe even give them a quick flossing).
Baffles and a collar around the face and neck seal you up tight against the cold, and the longitudinal torso and foot baffles use Flowgate technology to keep the down from sliding around and leaving you with cold spots. There's a zippered internal stash pocket for a midnight snack, and a taped zipper to prevent snagging when you adjust your bag in the middle of the night. Best of all, the whole package weighs in at just over three pounds, so you'll be able to take it along without worrying about overloading your pack and slowing down your companions.

Hand Filled in Derbyshire
Sleeping bags are firmly where we started and they remain a core part of our range to this day. Back in the 1970's when Rab Carrington was making sleeping bags in Patagonia, he probably didn't imagine that 40 years later sleeping bags with his name on them would be used all over the world in some of the most beautiful yet hostile environments.
To this day, we hand-fill our down insulated sleeping bags at our factory in Derbyshire, UK. This allows us to know for definite that, by the time our bags reach our customers, they have never been compressed or stored in a way which could be harmful for the down inside. By filling the bags in house, we can be completely sure that every down sleeping bag that leaves our factory will arrive to our customers in the best possible condition.
